suppose that you gave me a christmas gift. and i stuck it over in the corner and the next year you go, hey, rick, how did you like my gift? and i go, oh, i just got too busy to open it, you'd be offended. and yet many people have celebrated christmas after christmas after christmas and never opened god's gift. the gift of christmas have grace. and that is, no matter who i am, what i've done, where i've gone, there is forgiveness available. i can have my past forgiven, a purpose of living and a home in heaven. and it is a free gift. i receive it by grace. there's a verse in the bible that says, to those who believe and receive, to him he gave the right to become children of god. that's what i think it's all about, believing and receiving. >> pastor rick, happy holidays. >> thank you very much. merry christmas. >> that's all for us. >> that's all for us. merry christmas. -- captions by vitac -- www.vitac.com i'm don lemon.
